How to Use Nood Laser Hair Removal
The Nood laser hair removal device is used by first cleansing the area you wish to treat, setting the device to the appropriate intensity level, and then gliding it over the skin. This process is straightforward but involves several key steps which are explained below:
Firstly, it is important to note that laser hair removal works best on freshly cleansed skin. This is because dirt, oil and other residues can impede the laser’s ability to target the hair follicle effectively. Therefore, before using the Nood device, cleanse the area with a gentle, non-irritating cleanser and pat dry.
- Next, you should set the device to the appropriate intensity level. The Nood device has multiple settings, ranging from 1 (low) to 5 (high). People with lighter skin tones and darker hair generally require a higher setting, while those with darker skin tones and lighter hair should stick to lower settings to prevent skin damage.
- Once the device is set, position it at a 90-degree angle to the skin. This ensures the laser is directly targeting the hair follicle. Begin by pressing the device against your skin and pressing the ‘pulse’ button. You will feel a slight warming sensation as the device works.
- To treat a larger area, simply glide the device along your skin, ensuring it stays in contact at all times. It’s important to note that the device should not be used on the same spot more than once in a single session to avoid skin irritation.
After the treatment, avoid sun exposure and use a high-SPF sunscreen to protect the treated area. It’s also important to note that results are not immediate and consistent use of the Nood device over several weeks is typically required to achieve optimal results.
In summary, using the Nood laser hair removal device involves a simple process of skin preparation, device setting adjustment, and device application. Proper use and care can result in effective and safe hair removal at home.
Who can safely use the Nood laser hair removal device?
The Nood laser hair removal device is safe for use by individuals with skin types I to IV on the Fitzpatrick scale. The Fitzpatrick scale is a recognized tool in dermatology, used to classify different skin types. The Nood device, however, is not recommended for individuals with skin type V and VI, typically those with darker skin tones, due to the high melanin content that may result in skin damage or ineffective results.
Furthermore, the Nood laser hair removal device is most effective on hair colors that have a higher concentration of melanin, such as black and dark brown hair. Lighter hair colors such as blonde, red, grey or white may not respond effectively to the treatment due to their lack of melanin. It’s important to note that the device should not be used on tattooed skin or skin with permanent makeup, as the laser can cause fading or lead to skin damage in these areas.
- Skin types I to IV on the Fitzpatrick scale can safely use the Nood device.
- The device is not recommended for skin types V and VI.
- Most effective on black and dark brown hair colors.
- Not effective on blonde, red, grey or white hair.
- Should not be used on tattooed skin or skin with permanent makeup.
Before starting any laser hair removal treatment, it is essential to conduct a patch test. A patch test involves treating a small, discreet area of your skin with the device and waiting for at least 24 hours to ensure no adverse reactions occur. If you experience any severe discomfort, burning, or blistering, discontinue use immediately and consult a dermatologist.
Lastly, always remember to wear the provided safety goggles during treatment to protect your eyes from the laser light. Do not use the device near your eyes or on areas where you wish to grow hair in the future. The Nood device provides permanent hair reduction, and any area treated may not grow hair in the future.
When should the Nood laser hair removal device be used for optimal results?
The Nood laser hair removal device should ideally be used every two weeks for the first three to four instances, then once a month for the next three to four months for optimal results. This schedule is specifically designed to target hair in the active growth phase, also known as the anagen phase, which is the most effective time for laser hair reduction.
Laser hair removal works best when it targets hair follicles in the anagen phase because this is when the hair is most visible. The rationale behind this is that the laser targets the pigment in the hair, and when the hair is in the anagen phase, it contains the most pigment, making it easier for the laser to target and destroy the hair follicle.
However, not all hairs are in the anagen phase at the same time, which is why multiple treatments are needed. The hair growth cycle consists of three phases: anagen (growth), telogen (resting), and catagen (transitional). At any given time, only about 15-20% of your hair is in the anagen phase. As such, successive treatments ensure that as many hair follicles as possible are targeted during their anagen phase.
- Use the device every two weeks for the first three to four treatments.
- Then, switch to monthly treatments for the next three to four months.
- Always shave the area to be treated before using the device to ensure the laser targets the hair follicle effectively.
- Avoid sun exposure and tanning products for at least two weeks before and after each treatment to prevent skin damage.
- For people with darker skin tones, the melanin in the skin may absorb some of the laser energy, reducing the effectiveness of the treatment and increasing the risk of skin damage. Therefore, it’s recommended to use a lower intensity setting.
By following these guidelines, you can effectively use the Nood laser hair removal device for optimal results, eventually leading to a significant reduction in unwanted hair.
Where on the body can the Nood laser hair removal device be used?
The Nood laser hair removal device can be used on various body parts including the face, underarms, arms, legs, bikini line, and back. The device is designed with advanced IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology, facilitating the removal of unwanted hair effectively and safely.
Let’s explore the areas where the Nood device can be applied:
- Face: The Nood device can be used on facial hair. However, it is recommended to avoid the area around the eyes due to the sensitivity of this region.
- Underarms: For those seeking to eliminate underarm hair, the Nood device provides a quick and painless solution. It reduces hair growth and eventually leads to a smooth and hair-free underarm area.
- Arms and Legs: The Nood laser hair removal device is ideal for large areas like arms and legs. Its wide treatment window covers a larger area in less time, making the hair removal process efficient.
- Bikini Line: Bikini line hair removal is a common procedure and the Nood device handles this quite well. However, it’s crucial to use a lower energy level due to the sensitivity of this area.
- Back: Although it might require assistance, the Nood device can be used to remove hair from the back effectively.
The Nood device offers flexibility and adaptability, allowing for hair removal on a range of body parts. However, it’s important to note that while IPL technology is effective, it works best on lighter skin tones with dark hair. It may not be as effective for individuals with dark skin tones or lighter hair. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions and guidelines to ensure safe and effective use of the Nood laser hair removal device.
